Abstract submission form

The current Global Power Competition (GPC) climate can pose a change to the acquisition and fielding process of most systems.  It is important to understand the 21st Century T&E Tools to improve testing to meet the GPC demand.  How will the military budget, Dod, DHS, and Commercial Industry adjust in a time of risk and change?  Is your organization ready? 

This year the Symposium will be coordinated by the Hampton Roads Chapter  with Volunteers from across the entire ITEA community.  Please plan on both attending, and more importantly, participating in this year’s Annual Symposium. Join us and help us explore these ideas and others related to “Forging the 21st Century T&E Tools in an Era of Great Power Competition’” as part of our 39th Annual International Symposium.


Sessions will be unclassified and open to the general T&E community, however, restricted sessions (up to FOUO) may be made available. Abstracts will be reviewed for a presentation during a conference session or as a poster paper. Abstracts accepted for presentation, along with the slides, will be available online for attendees after the Symposium concludes.

Abstracts should be non-commercial in scope, pertinent to conference topic, no longer than 500 words, and releasable to the general public. Please complete the Abstract submission form and submit to Symposium@itea.org. Abstracts due 1 March 2022.
